Vigil Held at Pavilion Gardens Tonight
At 11 PM tonight, Pavilion Gardens will be lit up with the light of torches and phones. A vigil is being held in response to the recent sexual violence at the Gardens. Home Safe Brighton have organised the event in an attempt to reclaim the space and to empower and uplift women.
The event will feature speakers from the Survivors’ Network, The Survivors Movement & Brighton Botanicals with performances, and information about their outreach work being shared, as well as talks about women’s experiences.
Due to the sensitive nature of the event, Home Safe have requested for only over 18s attend, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Home Safe posted: “come and join us in lighting up the Pavilion Gardens to raise awareness and give us all an opportunity to stand up, band together and make some noise”.
